Waterloo gets creative for a good cause

UWaterloo CanBuild, featuring a collage of different canned structures

Beginning in 2014 in partnership with the Federation of Students Food Bank and the Food Bank of Waterloo Region, the University of Waterloo CanBuild competition helps create awareness of these issues by engaging the campus community to develop teams, collaborate, and put their design skills to work by building unique structures from the food donations they collect.

Trick or Eaters make a difference on the scariest night of the year

As darkness fell on October 31, non-perishable food items were collected throughout our city streets in support of the national hunger-awareness initiative, Trick or Eat.

Created by Meal Exchange as a youth-led, cross-Canada event, Trick or Eat puts a new spin on the annual night of giving – Halloween. Held on the scariest night of the year, thousands of Trick or Eaters throughout the country go door-to-door collecting food items for local community organizations, and funds to support students advocating for food for all.
